Publication abstract:

This report presents interim findings of the progress of the Remote School Attendance Strategy (RSAS). RSAS commenced in 2014 and is designed to lift school attendance in selected remote communities through employment of local School Attendance Supervisors and School Attendance Officers who work with schools, families, and children to ensure students go to school every possible day. This report presents two forms of data analysis: quantitative analysis of weekly school attendance data and qualitative analysis of reasons cited for why children are not attending school. This report predominantly assesses the impact of RSAS for the 2014 school year.

This report complements the Case Study Research for the Remote School Attendance Strategy.
